Why is Pomelo Pay good for my business?

More payment options for your customers

Digital payments such as contactless and mobile payments have revolutionised customers’ spending habits. Today card payments are more common than cash in the UK.

With Pomelo Pay you can accept card payments on site or via a payment request. In addition, the customer has a range of ways to pay: Apple Pay, Google Pay, credit and debit card. All it costs to you is a 1.49% transaction fee.

Cover the cost of materials

Do you need to buy materials up front for a job? Simply send your customer a payment request with our app and the next day you’ll receive funds that you can use to buy materials.

You can choose to send the payment request by email, text message or WhatsApp. When the customer receives the message all they need to do is click on the link and select a payment method.

Keep customers happy

When it comes to being paid for a job there might be times when you can only accept cash. While it might not be a problem for you it’s possible that you frustrate customers who prefer to pay by card.

Don’t risk alienating your customers or, even worse, losing out to competitors simply because you don’t accept cashless payments. Use our quick and easy app to offer a more flexible and convenient payment experience to your customers.

Improved cash flow

Being paid on time is crucial for any small business. With Pomelo Pay your transaction is remitted the next working day, which means no more waiting around for customer payments to hit your bank account.

No more chasing payments

Are you always chasing late payments? We know that it can be very frustrating for you to spend a large portion of your time following up on payments. With Pomelo Pay you can take payments as soon as a job is complete.

Travel light

Are you currently taking card payments? Are you tired of carrying an old clunky card reader? Are you always waiting for your card machine to connect via Bluetooth?  With Pomelo Pay you wouldn’t encounter these problems as there isn’t any external terminal to take payments. This means fewer things to carry; all you need is your smartphone.

Cutting edge QR technology

Pomelo Pay uses QR code technology to facilitate on the spot cashless payments. To date, QR code payments have been largely been driven by countries in Asia, with payment platform AliPay and WeChat Pay emerging as a cultural phenomena, accounting for close to $5.5 trillion transactions in 2016.

The success of QR codes aren’t just limited to Asia. Many businesses in Europe and America are seeing the potential in QR payments and adopting the technology.

Thanks to QR codes Pomelo Pay can empower merchants to take card payments with just their smartphone – no set -up, no card readers, no contract. Just immediate payments.

Competitive prices
